More About Employment Solutions
We offer a variety of programs that support our mission in different ways, but Employment Solutions provides the capability to do even more.
The concept behind Employment Solutions is simple. We want to be able to serve anyone in our community, regardless of qualifying criteria, and help them prepare for and find meaningful employment. Therefore anyone in need of employment assistance in the Omaha Metro area can come to Goodwill and receive employment assistance.
Employment Ready staff provided nearly 20,000 services to program participants in the past year- ranging from practice interviews, to criminal history abatement, to employability skills before and after hire.
Business Solutions is the second program related to this initiative. Business Solutions takes the same approach as Employment Ready, but focuses those efforts on employers, rather than job seekers. Our Business Solutions staff specializes in identifying the hiring needs in our city, and matching those needs with the people we serve.
Employment Ready and Business Solutions staff work together seamlessly within Goodwill. Employment Ready values the job development efforts that Business Solutions maintains in the community, as it allows them to concentrate on job readiness. Business Solutions needs work-ready people to fill employer needs. We’ve designed these two programs so that they operate in a connected but independent way—providing the best services to people and businesses alike.
Follow our Business Solutions and Employment Ready programs on Facebook for information and updates within the programs. Click here to follow our events page on Facebook for a current calendar of events and happenings throughout Goodwill Omaha.
To date, we’ve served more than 1,500 people through this program, and helped fill 500 jobs for area employers.
We hope you will join us on April 18.
